BYTE* to an Image (GDI+?)

Hi, I have a BYTE array that I'd like to write out as an image file. The file type doesn't really matter, JPEG / Tiff / BMP would be desirable. I'm already using the GDI+ lib, so I thought there might be a way of doing it with GDI+? I've spend all day looking on the net for a way to do it. There seems to be a lot written in c# and the Bitmap class (using MemoryStream), but nothing in C++. Using Visual Studio 2005. Can anyone help? Thanks, David.

Look into CreateDIBSection. This returns you a pointer where you can copy your image data into.

This is with pure GDI though; you get a HBITMAP from the function, you should be able to use that with GDI+.
